Really surprised to not see Madden 20 on the list - it's been there on years past.

Yeah, we're pretty close to launch now (about 3 weeks for deluxe editions). I can't believe there's no word on the $10 certificate or the trade in promo.

The trade in promo was mentioned in this weeks ad. 10$ coupon + trade in value when you trade Madden 19.

No problem! I was happy to see they kept this promotion going since it seems like the EA sports games aren't getting the 10 dollar preorder treatment this year. Still the best deal for Madden 20 for those of us who have GCU for a while longer.

And Madden 18 can be traded for the $10 coupon as well. It’s $4 with Elite Pro at Gamestop for the PS4 version.

Yeah, this is my last hurrah with GCU, so I figured I might as well get it one more time. Going to be tougher to justify full price if EA doesn't start making huge leaps with the game though.

Yeah, I agree. Unfortunately, I feel like next year will probably be even more of a pre-next gen cash in. Luckily, I still have GCU until 10/2022 so I have a few more years to keep buying the same game :)

Wow, I swore off of physical copies but to get Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition for $80 (GCU) and $10 Rewards?  What an awesome deal.

I'm going to miss ya, GCU.

Would the $10 Madden coupon work on top of price matching since Amazon has it for $51?

I don’t believe so. Price matching will cancel the coupon or the coupon will go in effect first and then the price match will occur,

I know this is off topic, but does anybody know when Best Buy sends the final coupon for GCU? Mine expires Aug. 12, so I was assuming it might be sent today. Thanks in advance.

AFAIK, they give you only a few days notice and then it expires pretty quick. They might be doing people favors with it, but the kindness is heavy-handed.

Since Madden got no $10, Fifa seems like it will get the same treatment, bummer. Been doing the trade-in deals for 3 years and they were the best!

Wish it worked on digital.  Didn't $ GCU work on some games?  I might have to do this on a physical copy too then.

GCU never worked on digital (if that was what you were asking).  The $10 reward works on digital though.

The $20 discount it too much to pass up, plus I will be playing so much of it that the disc will live in my Xbox anyway.  I'll trade it in and pick up the digital version later on the cheap.

So my GCU expired several months ago and in preparation I made a bunch of pre-orders. Checked in on some of them today and about half of them had a shipping charge added to them ($1-$5 depending on the order).

 

Called support in order to have it removed (since I'm an Elite member) and they told me that modifying the order would remove the GCU discount. So I'd either have to pay the shipping charge that was mysteriously added or not get the 20% off.

 

Probably going to cancel most of the pre-orders and wait for price drops instead. I don't really want to continue supporting a company that's going to give me the runaround.

Pretty bad. I'll keep an eye on my  pre-orders too. Thanks for the heads up.

Wonder if you couldn't just get a credit after it ships?  Sucks they would pull that but not surprised.

Yeah, that's garbage. Probably plenty to keep playing until newer games drop anyway. At least, that's where I'm at once WoW classic drops lol.

Garfield Kart: Furious Racing PS4/Switch is up at Best Buy $29.99 also comes with a $10 Gift Card

Seems Best Buy added a few more games that come with $10 egiftcard.

 

New ones I've seen so far include:

 

Trine 4 ($29.99 MSRP)

Trine Ultimate Collection ($49.99)

Blaksad: Under the Skin Limited Edition ($49.99)

Roman Rumble in Las Vegum: Asterix and Obelisk XXL 2 ($29.99)

 

Guess I will cancel and reorder the Trine games since I already had them preordered.

 

On a different note I noticed that Pokemon Sword/Shield and the Double Pack no longer have the "$10 Reward Eligible" graphic on the product listing.  Did they remove them from the program?

Ordered :ps4: Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition. I was going to get the regular edition, but decided to go big since I love the Borderlands franchise (and still have GCU to bring it down to $80). Supposedly, the SDE's price is going to increase from $100 to $120 on September 17.

 

On a different note I noticed that Pokemon Sword/Shield and the Double Pack no longer have the "$10 Reward Eligible" graphic on the product listing.  Did they remove them from the program?

They still list the Pokemon games as $10 eligible on this page: https://www.bestbuy....cat308100050002

I recommend those that ordered Pokemon to take a screenshot of that page just in case you need to prove $10 eligibility later on.
